Alzheimers Society – Housing organisations urged to unite against dementia

Alzheimer’s Society is calling on housing organisations to unite against dementia and improve the lives of people living with the condition by signing up to its new Dementia-friendly housing charter.

Research from the leading dementia charity* has previously found that 85 per cent of people want to stay living at home for as long as possible when diagnosed with dementia, but that a third of the general public would not know where to find information about how to make their home and living environment suitable.

Alzheimer’s Society is launching the Dementia-friendly housing charter to help housing professionals better understand dementia and how housing, its design and supporting services can help improve and maintain the wellbeing of people affected.
